The Compendium of Cultural Policies & Trends is a web-based and permanently updated information and monitoring system of national cultural policies and related development. At the heart of this platform lies the Compendium database, which encompasses 43 cultural policy country profiles. These profiles are mainly drawn up and updated by independent cultural policy experts (i.e. ‘expert authors’), in consultation with respective ministries.

Together with the Compendium’s members and board, our expert authors are part of the Compendium community. This dedicated group of cultural policy experts and Compendium supporters meet once a year during our annual Assembly.
